It Only Takes One Mom… (VIDEO)

Man! So many of my friends are in this video – how can I NOT post it?? Have you heard about ONE Moms? A few of my friends headed to Africa this summer to see first hand what extreme poverty looks like. Now that they are back state-side, they are continuing their efforts to spread awareness.

From ONE Moms website:

ONE Moms is a movement of moms everywhere using their extraordinary power to spread awareness for the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease. These moms are leading a movement to promote education, engagement and activism on behalf of the world’s poorest. Recently, we took 10 social media moms to Kenya as a first step in this effort, where these American moms met their African counterparts and experienced extreme poverty as told through the lens of a mother in Africa.

  1. For years my plan has been to move to Africa after my kids leave the nest so I can do mission work and the like. One of the best books I’ve ever read was ‘The End of Poverty: the Economic Possibilities of Our Time” by Jeffrey Sachs and all of the Millennium reports to the UN on the subject. I’ve actually read all of his books and just received his new one “The Price of Civilization”. They’re excellent reads.

    They’re so lucky to have been a part of this! What a great experience.
